You are here



NextGenBUG meetings are open to all, and there is no charge for attendance. We especially welcome early stage researchers and newcomers to genome informatics.

NextGenBUG meetings are put together by the local organiser and the community. We try to ensure that there is a speaker of international stature invited for each meeting, but the remainder of the meeting is open for talks volunteered from the community. If you want to speak at a meeting, get in touch with the organiser give them the title of your talk. We usually allocate 15 min for talks, and 5 min for discussion - so if you need more time, ask us ( NextGenBUG is a great venue to practice for big meeting talks, present ideas you are working on, and introduce the community to new ideas and approaches.

Commercial / industrial speakers are welcome, but please do ensure you present research information and not just a sales pitch. We welcome commercial sponsorship: please contact us at

We encourage all speakers to upload their presentations to the NextGenBUG F1000 Research Channel.
